What to Expect from a Product Photography Session with Irierootsini


Ever wondered about the process that professional product photographers undertake to capture those eye-catching images that sells? Whether it's for online or print advertising, the demand for top-notch product photography is undeniable. In this blog, we'll delve into the essential steps required to produce commercial-grade photographs that elevate your products.


Before diving into the process, it's crucial to identify the purpose of your product photos. Starting with a foundation, we'll explore product photography packages available on our website to help you make informed choices.



In navigating the diverse applications of product photography, it's crucial to identify the specific platform and image type required. This includes considerations for online stores, e-commerce sites like Amazon, Ebay, Shopify, product catalogs, brochures, social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram, and traditional print media like magazines, newspapers, and billboards. For instance, Amazon necessitates a pure white background for product images, excluding Lifestyle Product Photography. While there are more examples to explore, those details will be covered in a future blog.


Currently, Irierootsini Photography offers three tailored packages to meet all your product photography needs—the Basic, Deluxe, and Premium Packages. For those aiming to showcase products on online or e-commerce platforms, the Basic Package is the ideal choice, encompassing individual, group, detailed, and component shots, along with teaser shots. Consider the Deluxe Package if you desire dynamic customer interaction with GIF File Images, featuring 360-degree spins or stop-motion animations to highlight product functionality. Alternatively, our Premium Package, designed for products featuring models and lifestyle photography, involves meticulous planning and conceptualization to create compelling images for effective product advertising. Explore our detailed product photography packages for a comprehensive understanding of the inclusions.


Are you aware that an increasing number of online businesses are incorporating GIF Files alongside their JPEG product images? GIF Files, being smaller in size (ranging from 500kb to 4mb) yet offering enhanced content value compared to JPEG Files, have become a popular choice for marketing products. The added advantage is their continuous play once the website page is loaded. Explore samples of Product Stop-Motion Animation and 180 to 360 Degree Photography GIF Files below.


Depending on your requirements, products can move in different ways.


Additionally, among the mentioned product photography packages, an intriguing new online service has captured the interest of consumers – 360-degree product spin photography. This innovative product photography trend presents a single image comprised of multiple images. With a simple touch or click, viewers can interactively rotate the image in 360 degrees, providing a dynamic and engaging experience.
